Gjmelio_ Whether these “accidents” are caused by rogue foreign powers or not, what is absolutely clear is that piloting any vessel or aircraft using remote and/or auto technology that can be hacked into, is unbelievably irresponsible.
Stephen Samson Successful outcome. Metal and glass can be replaced, lives can’t. A great result for the crew members and their rescuers. Families back home relieved no doubt.
